Raven's Unreal Team Clips min's Team, Adds To Their Pain

Week 5

  • Raven's Unreal Team
  • 3-2
  • Weekly Grade: C-
  • 72.48
  • min's Team
  • 1-4
  • Weekly Grade: D
  • 70.8

Raven's Unreal Team (3-2, 429.88 points) should consider changing their logo to a shamrock after they managed to squeak past min's Team 72.48 to 70.80. They won despite getting only the eighth-highest point total in the league this week. Raven's Unreal Team should feel pretty lucky, winning with just 84.3% of their 85.98 per-game average. As the saying goes, however, luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Luck hasn't always been their thing, though. They've also had one tough loss this season, losing even though they scored near the top of the league in points. This was a frustrating one for min's Team (1-4, 295.32 points) to take as, in addition to losing, they also ended up ninth in the league in points.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 5

Miles Austin Dal - WR 2009 vs. Kansas City 10 receptions, 250 yards, 2 TDs Before Miles Austin gained .142 miles against the Chiefs in early October of '09, he had only topped 45 receiving yards just one other time in his career to that point.

To say that Austin broke out that day in Kansas City would be an understatement. Austin averaged just north of 20 yards per game in his first four contests of '09, but from Week 5 to Week 17, there was no fantasy WR better than Austin, who averaged 103.3 receiving yards and scored 10 times in that 12-game span.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
